If you are a Mexican food lover like I am, let your imagination run wild and you can almost hear the fajitas sizzling and feel the sharp, hot taste of the jalapenos on your tongue. If your stomach is growling and you are now obsessing about a warm, tasty Mexican meal, then make plans to head to one of the area Rio Grande restaurants for lunch or dinner.

Rio Grande has several locations in Kanawha and Putnam counties. Each location offers basically the same menu along with the same reasonable prices and courteous, efficient service.

All meals at Rio Grande begin with chips and the restaurantís signature salsa, which are complimentary with your order. The chips are also a hit with their cheese dip (which is to die for and can be eaten with a spoon if you run out of chips).

The selections on the menu seem endless, and there are ample choices to satisfy all tastes. Most selections can be prepared with either beef or chicken, and there are a number of items for vegetarians as well.

Numerous tasty desserts are available if you have any room left after your chips and salsa and meal. If you donít think you have room for an entire dessert, you can always share one with someone else.

Service is always quick, friendly and efficient. And if you are celebrating a special occasion, there is normally someone on hand to serenade you with a Mexican song of your choice.

Rio Grande offers a great place for individuals and groups to gather for a fun evening of eating and socializing. Whether itís two friends meeting for a quick meal or a family gathering to celebrate a special occasion, the employees are quick to accommodate parties of almost any size.

Donít let Cinco de Mayo pass without getting together with your family or friends and sharing an evening around a delicious Mexican meal at your local Rio Grande. ďGraciasĒ will definitely be one of the words on the tip of your tongue at the end of the evening.
